Both are Watters and Watters, I found the Austin first, then added the Napa today. I cried when I put it on, which I really didn’t expect to ever do, but I can get the Austin secondhand for about $1200, while the Napa is so new I’d have go retail ($2600). When I tried the Austin on again after the Napa, I still totally loved it. Basically the Napa has gorgeous details on the bodice, but the simplicity of the Austin allows for amazing accesories, like the bling-y belt I have on in here. What do you think, is the Napa nicer enough to justify $1300 more?

I honestly like the Austin so much more than the Napa. You look great in it!

I prefer the simplicity of the Austin. 🙂
And no, I don’t think the price difference is justified unless you really prefer the Napa and can afford it.
You’re right in that they’re both beautiful!

I got confused and thought the Austin was more expensive for a sec, and was sad that I’d have to say get the pricier one because the Austin is def the best. I’m so glad the Austin is the more affordable and I don’t have to have that guilt to vote honestly 🙂
It looks AMAZING on you, and I want to try it on for me now too hehe

Austin, and that has nothing to do with the price; I just prefer it.

I love both! I ultimately voted Napa, because I like how smooth it is on your body and empahsizes your waist. Then I read that it costs $1300 more. I like it $200 more, not $1300 more! The Austin looks gorgeous on you too and that sash is gorgeous! You can’t go wrong with either.

I would ask what you feel your wedding will be more like? They are both absolutely gorgeous on you, and you look so lovely. I only ask because the Austin has a more clean/blingy effect, whereas the Napa would be great for a vintage-y/garden-y shabby chic wedding. You made some lovely choices for yourself, I would just go with the one that suits the vibe you’re going for overall.

@colli459: I’m having a farm/barn wedding, so rustic and a bit vintage. I agree with you on the personalities of the dresses, though I also thought the Austin could have a simple, country feel.
Everyone else, I love that you all love the Austin! I think the Napa would be my choice all else being even, but I really think I’ll be totally thrilled wearing the Austin too. By The Way, the difference in retail price is about $600, it’s just that I have found the Austin secondhand.

I skipped right to the pictures and loved the Austin before I even went back and read the price. With the pricing info too, definitely Austin!

I really like the Napa, but it’s probably not worth the dramatic price increase. The Austin looks amazing too!
